If Carly Fiorina Were A Liberal, Would ‘The View’ Still Attack Her?

November 5, 2015

Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina is heading into the lioness’s den on Friday morning. She will appear on ABC’s The View, a week after co-host Michelle Collins said that Fiorina’s face looked “demented” during the recent presidential debate and co-host Joy Behar joked that the candidate’s face would be a good Halloween mask.

The View is usually hostile territory for conservatives and Republican candidates. Viewers and casual observers of the media war between the left and right will recall past fireworks between the show’s former co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck served as the show’s token Republican for a 10 year period. Liberal feminism is the conventional wisdom on The View and those who challenge it appear at their own risk.

But on the eve of tomorrow’s show, it’s The View’s co-hosts who should be worried.
